Farming outside the CAP – Perspectives on British farming after Brexit

Chair: Adam Payne (LWA) Speakers: Stein Brubæk (Norwegian Small Farms Union), Ramona Duminicioiu, Simon Fairlie (Monkton Wyld)

The session will explore the threats and opportunities that Brexit holds for small-scale and family farms in the UK. We will hear how 10 years of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has affected life for Romanian producers – the biggest peasant community in Europe with over four million farmers; how Norway has managed its agricultural policy in relationship to the EU; what the Landworkers’ Alliance thinks we should do about post-brexit British Agricultural Policy.
